Applique + Embroidery

I started this little embroidery piece near the beginning of 2016. I wasn’t sure where I was going with it, but now I have a definite plan. I hope it turns out well, but I think it will!

I’m appliqueing each of the flowers in a circle around the monogram. The small monogram was bought and brought back from Venice, Italy. We bought it when we lived there many years ago care of the Army. With some delicate silk thread, it was easily sewn to my linen background. The liberty of London flowers around the circle will have embellishments of hand embroidery.

This isn’t my normal genre of project, and it will be a travel/handwork project for me. I look forward to being able to give you an update on this one!
